U.S. Congress, House of Representatives, Who Cares About Privacy?: Oversight of the Privacy Act of 1974 by the Office of Management and Budget and by the Congress (H. Rept. 98-455, 98th Cong., 1st Sess. 1983.).
This report summarizing nine years (1975 to 1983) of congressional oversight of the 1974 Privacy Act, the House Committee on Government Operations concluded that OMB had not pursued its responsibility to revise and update its original guidance from 1975 and had not actively monitored agency compliance with its guidance. It stated “Interest in the Privacy Act at [OMB] has diminished steadily since 1975. Each successive Administration has shown less concern about Privacy Act oversight.”
